Digestive Disease Week study examined ACR's guidelines for CT colonography interpretation
Date:7/10/2008

fore these lesions progress to advanced disease. Researchers looked to characterize pancreatic neoplastic lesions detected by imaging tests in high risk individuals; to compare the diagnostic yield and incremental benefit of EUS over CT/MRCP; and to determine the incremental benefit of fine needle aspiration (FNA) over EUS alone.

Data prospectively collected from 1998-2007 from two screening studies and the center's clinical screening program were analyzed. High risk individuals with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome or first degree relatives from familial ductal adenocarcinoma kindreds with at least two affected, had either multi-detector CT and or MRI/MRCP, and EUS. Radiologic and EUS features of each preoperatively detected lesion were compared with the pathologic findings. The diagnostic yield of each imaging modality was calculated on a per lesion basis.

Of 165 patients who had EUS and CT/MRCP, 19 asymptomatic high risk individuals underwent partial resection (15), partial followed by completion pancreatectomy (3), or total pancreatectomy (1) for 44 pancreatic lesions (size range 2.6-21 mm) detected by EUS, CT or MRCP. Researchers concluded that most pancreatic neoplasms detected by screening tests are small and low grade, but six percent of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms < 3 cm may contain high grade dysplasia. EUS detects almost twice as many neoplastic lesions as CT/MRCP, regardless of size, and FNA adds little to EUS.

Peroral Cholangioscopy Guided Stone Therapy C Report of an International Multicenter Registry
